Tom Brady dressed to impress at Monday night’s Met Gala — but fans weren’t loving his outfit fit for the theme “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.”
Brady arrived at the star-studded event at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art with his model wife Gisele Bundchen, both wearing Atelier Versace. The New England Patriots quarterback donned a Barocco-embroidered Versace suit, with a gold design on his lapel.
Though the couple seemed to love their outfits for the gala, Twitter users weren’t so fond of Brady’s look. Fans mocked the football player’s embroidered suit, some calling him a “dragon slayer,” an “accountant for a mariachi band” and the villain in a “James Bond” movie.
“Tom Brady dressed as a dragon slayer to the #MetGala”
“Or a Chinese New Year calendar”, one person wrote.

“tom brady looks like he’s about to ask a room full of people to suspend their disbelief and believe in the power of magic just for one night,” one tweet read.
Sporting News tweeted, “There’s no way Tom Brady isn’t secretly a James Bond super-villain.”

Despite the criticism, Brady and Bundchen’s outfits were rather reserved compared to what other stars wore. At the end of the night, Brady posted a photo with Bundchen and captioned it: “24k Magic….My Beautiful Date @gisele Linda Mamai.”
Bundchen also revealed her gold dress was made with sustainable organic silk.
